Kanomp Breizh Choir

Kanomp Breizh Choir has benn created in a 2014, on the occasion of  the federation's 10th anniversary. It almost gathers 150 singers from 12 choirs, members of Kanomp Breizh. They all come from Brittany, from Ploudalmézeau to Nantes. 
This choir, directed by Jean-Marie Airault, has been imagined to create or recreate major works of our breton composers. It is accompagnied by an instrumental group accompagné : Gwenaël Riou (organ), Georges Bertholom (guitar), Jean-Pierre Dovilliers ( guitar bass), Françoise Le Visage (harp), Yann Goasdoué (bag-pipe), Alain Nizou (tin-whistle and uileann-pipe), Dominig Mahé, Gilles Troël et Ronan Pouliquen (bombards). 

The first word presented by Kanomp Breizh Choir is cantata Ar Marh Dall, by Job an Irien and René Abjean. It has been played a few times : on décembre 2014 in Pontivy, for Breizh a Gan of the 10th anniversary of our fédération, on july t 2015 in opening of Kann al Loar festival, Landerneau and in preview showing of  Cornwall festival in Quimper. 

Ar Marh Dall cantata : 
Written in 1978, sung for the first time 35 years ago in 1979 for Bleun-Brug Plougastel-Daoulas, this cantata full of strength and lyrical outburst is a wake up call against forgetting our identity, our language and our history. The lyrics bring an amazing sense of being freshly written ( as said by Job an Irien himself after the concert in Pontivy : if I were about to write it again, I wouldn't change a word of it ! ), and the music has kept the entire power of the emotions.
